About me

Hello! I am currently accepting new clients via telehealth! I am a licensed professional counselor who provides individual therapy for adults. My aim is to assist clients in gaining insight into their own mental health struggles and co-collaborate treatment goals based on what they want to achieve. I do focus a great deal on self-care, how to create boundaries, self esteem, and how to ask for help. Having a good support system and making sure your needs are met are important part of your foundation. I also explore how to identify emotions experienced and where they stem from that get in the way of our functioning and our happiness.
I provide Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. I utilize a strength based approach to help you gain a better understanding of yourself and how you can use those strengths in all aspects of your lives. I also focus on building coping skills to manage difficult emotions to navigate your life with more ease.

I have worked as an Adult Outpatient Therapist, a Child Outpatient Therapist and an Outreach Therapist for children and families at Clinical Support Options, Springfield, Massachusetts. I have also worked as an Outreach IICAPS Therapist (Intensive In-Home Child & Adolescent Psychiatric Services) for high risk youth at Community Health Resources, Windsor, Ct.
